Welcome to the Department of Civil and Construction Technology at University of Balamand.
Today, civil and construction technology have central roles to play in defining the future of our nation and the world. The critical issues of the day—economic recovery, energy conservation and resources, infrastructure preservation, environmental quality and climate change, and national security, among others—each demand critical thinking about the materials, systems, design, operations, and management of civil infrastructure systems, as well as the natural systems with which they interact. These are tasks for civil and construction technologists, in close collaboration with broader interdisciplinary teams.
Students who are trained in civil and construction technology at University of Balamand have a broad, fluid base in science and technology. This enables them to work across disciplines and tackle the grand challenges of improving our living conditions in harmony with nature.
Civil and Construction Technology focuses on concepts and principles in the built environment and on the technological process. It embraces practical skills and the application of scientific principles. This subject aims to create and improve the built environment to enhance the quality of life of the individual and society and to ensure the sustainable use of the natural environment. The program focuses on two main areas: (1) Green and Smart Building, (2) Water Treatment and Networks. Graduates will find study and work opportunities on almost every continent in the world, pursuing careers in business, consulting, and technology-driven industry; in public health, environmental protection, and ecological restoration; in small and large scale construction and material and structural analysis and design; and in managing air, water, and land transit of goods and people.
